Multi-section cooperation policy, new approach to relations between Iran and Austria

Multi-section cooperation policy, new approach to relations between Iran and Austria
IRAN  - In a meeting held between the Deputy of International Affairs to the High Council for Human Rights and Stefan Scholz, the Austrian Ambassador to Tehran on Monday, the two sides discussed aspects of judicial and human rights cooperation between the two countries.

Mentioning the constructive meeting held between the former Austrian Foreign Minister, Sebastian KURZ, currently holding the position of the Austrian prime minister, and the then Secretary of High Council for Human Rights, Mohammad Javad Larijani in 2015, Scholz elaborated on Austria's new approach called "multi-section cooperation policy", adding that judicial cooperation is one of the aspects of the mentioned policy.

The Deputy of International Affairs to the HCHR, Majid Tafreshi explained about the activities and duties of the HCHR in both domestic and international arenas, particularly the cooperation with the UN Human Rights Council and judicial experiences and dialogues exchanged with certain European countries. He also appreciated the new mechanism for cooperation between the two countries.


Amb. Tafreshi mentioned the ongoing cruel and illegal sanctions imposed by the US against the Iranian nation and their unavoidable negative impact on people's lives. "However, the way Iran combated the coronavirus especially the effective measures adopted by the Judiciary including granting furlough to more than 110,000 inmates and the unconditional release enjoyed by more than 14000 prisoners all indicate the human rights high values in our judicial system", he added.

"The attitude the Judiciary has towards granting pardon to inmates conveys the high position of human dignity in our judicial system," Amb. Tafreshi said. He also stressed that Iran is the only country that, based on the proposal submitted by the Head of the Judiciary to the Supreme Leader, on different religious occasions, provides inmates with opportunities 14 times a year so they could enjoy freedom or a reduction in their punishment.

In the end, the Austrian Ambassador to Tehran expressed his gratitude for the explanations and requested that the cooperation between the two countries be expanded.
